Here is my illustration for Cultivate, inspired by my daughter and similar to the illustration in my sidebar. I'm kind of tickled with this character and have plans to use her in future illustrations. And I had to include our kitty, Juliet, trying to steal some affection though she is black in real life and I haven't quite figured out how to paint her as an illustration using black...yet. I'm thinking I may need to darken the values in this but here it is for now.

Tess Sykes is my new best friend! She is a local writer who I met when she did a couple of stories last year- one about a local art club that I belong to, Bellevue Artists Association and then another highlighting the watercolor class that I began teaching one year ago. She recently started a blog to review children's books and asked to interview me. I am really impressed with her writing. :) Everyone needs to know a person like Tess to cheer them on. Thank you, Tess!
